New Mail Basic Beta



Welcome to our Yahoo Basic Mail feedback forum! This is a place for you to help shape the new Yahoo Basic Mail experience. We review the most popular, feasible ideas from this forum to make positive changes to your Yahoo Mail.

Basic Mail provides base functionality like reading and writing messages, but does not include many of the advanced options. To use these features, we recommend upgrading to full-featured version of Yahoo Mail.

Here are some guidelines for using this forum:

  1. Please search and vote before posting! If your idea (or an idea very similar to yours) has already been posted, please vote for it. Duplicated ideas may be moved.
  2. This forum is for feedback and ideas only. Unfortunately, we cannot provide support here. For support, please visit our help site.
  3. Please do not post personal information (such as email addresses, phone numbers or names) on the forum.

The Yahoo product feedback forum requires a valid Yahoo ID and password. If you do not have a Yahoo ID or the password to your Yahoo ID, please sign-up for a new account.

If you have a valid Yahoo ID and password, follow these steps if you would like to remove your posts, comments, votes, and/or profile from the Yahoo product feedback forum.


  1. The search box doesn't even work. This sucks. Put everything back the way it was. Yahoo mail is now negatively impacting my business.

    The search box doesn't work. This sucks. It also sucks that this was forced on us. Can't trust yahoo. Put things back the way they were a month or two ago.

  2. When unread emails (in the Inbox list) are selected with the checkbox and the delete button clicked, the messages are not deleted

    In the inbox that shows a list of emails, if an unread email is selected using the checkbox and the "Delete" button clicked, the selected email is not deleted. In the "old"/previous version (yesterday), in the Inbox list, a user could select unread emails using the checkbox, then click on "Delete" button at the top, and the emails would be deleted. This no longer works (at least using Chrome).

  4. When someone selects "Go Back to Old Version" make it permanent!

    If I select "Go Back to Old Version" that means I prefer the old version. Stop changing it back after I sign out!!!!!

  5. I wish you would just leave everything alone! I do not understand why you have to change things when nothing is broken!

    It is just getting old with you changing all the time. I DO NOT WANT THE NEW VERSION. PLEASE CHANGE IT BACK OR MAYBE WE ALL NEED TO GO SOMEWHERE ELSE OR START OUR OWN EMAIL. WHAT DOES EVERYONE THINK ON THAT?

  6. STOP CHANGING MAIL! Improve by firing the one(s) who changed it!

  7. Your new mail doesn't work, I can't delete anything. Switch back to old email

    The new email does not work. I cannot delete emails. Switch back. Why change something that works. Change is not always good. Now it does not work.

  8. Allow users to revert back to "classic yahoo mail"

    The delete button doesn't work! I have to open each mail I want to delete? I get tons of email every day, and I don't have time to open them all! Please at least allow an option to revert back to the "classic Yahoo mail" that most yahoo mail-users use every day, and have come to count on!

  9. Allow us to KEEP the old version when we choose to go back to it.

    It is more than a little annoying that you included (sometimes) a "go back to old version" option, but as soon as I sign out I'm returned to the new version. It is amazing that Yahoo continues to challenge loyal users to stay with them, even these days.

  10. i like the old version better .

    i like the old version better . its difficult for me to attach files now. the old version was a simpler drag and drop, also when I'm viewing my email id rather one scroll down as opposed to clicking the next page

  13. Now I can't block the spammers!!! I am beginning to hate Yahoo mail!

    Stop changing it to where spammers can't be blocked. I am about to stop using Yahoo and just use my Gmail and AT&T emails for all my business.

  19. What is wrong with you people? You change my e mail without even asking? Theres no option to return to my old e mail either. Not cool.
